GREATER MILL WOODS DINING WEEK HISTORY
This project was presented by Daniel Witte as part of the participatory budget program with Keren Tang and Ward Karhiio. Mill Woods Presidents’ Council was presented with the idea and became the organization that would assist in coordinating the event, using the seedmonton.ca website and other social media platforms. As Mill Woods Presidents' Council also represents communities from Ward Sspomitapi, Jo-Anne Wright’s office contributed funds to the project in December 2022. Four other volunteers joined the planning committee and a date of March 3rd - 12th was chosen.
The process of deciding what restaurant would be included started with an online survey from December 18th - January 16th for members of the community to nominate a restaurant.
Our focus was on restaurants, cafes, eating establishments that are;
- only in Mill Woods, The Meadows or Ellerslie.
- chains local to Edmonton located in Mill Woods, The Meadows or Ellerslie
- chains where the only Edmonton location is in Mill Woods, The Meadows or Ellerslie
A total of 125 people completed the survey and a list of 30 restaurants was developed based on those responses. All 30 restaurants were approached to be a part of the Greater Mill Woods Dining Week and 9 restaurants decided to participate. These include 2nd Floor Cafe with the Mill Woods Senior Association, Cafe Mak, Magma Donair, Reinette Café & Pâtisserie, Royal Pizza, Sweet Castle Bakery, Tasty World Chinese Restaurant and Tiffin India’s Fresh Kitchen.
We look forward to a fun and successful event supporting local restaurants!
